A must have tool in your box

Worked well for me, I like to take the pads out first and pump the the Pistons out onto the disks, which frees them up considerably then it's just a simple matter of removing the caliper and gripping hold of the Pistons and popping them out with ease using this tool, makes the job very easy a stress free.Read full review...

Inadequate

These pliers would be fine....if.....

1) They were large enough for the pistons of single and twin piston calipers found on older bikes, and being older, are more likely to need to have their calipers serviced and have semi-seized or seized pistons.

2) The locking screw mechanism was stronger - the spindle is of a tiny diameter and does not inspire confidence in its ability to lock the pliers in place and thus deal with stubborn pistons

3) Instructions were included. Most people would try to use the pliers like a conventional pair and try and use them to pull the pistons out like a nail from a piece of wood, whereas in fact you have to lay them flat against the piston, lock them in position with the knurled semi-circular contact surfaces against the inside of the piston and twist them to and forth.

Hopefully Sealey will upgrade their pliers' design to make them a better tool. I don't see these lasting very long in a workshop environment.

Did the job

Got this as a couple of pots were seized in place, not 100% sure how long they will last as needed tightening but to be fair they had a tough job straight out the pack. Saved paying someone else to do the job, its not an every day job so these will no doubt be used again when I strip the callipers completely. Would recommend this handy little tool.Read full review...

Poor quality

Very flimsy product, only good to remove pistons that are not seized. I never managed to remove one piston before it twisted and broke

Good but could be tougher

Did the job on two very stuck pistons but it's flimsy enough. Didn't break but needed frequent tightening

OK for occasional use

Fine for doing the odd caliper now and again but make sure the pistons move a bit before you start...if they are seized solid the tool will struggle

Scrap

This tool is way too poorly made for the job it twisted the first time that I used it. Now in the scrap pile and borrowed a friends tool and did the job in under 2 mins.
